    Well, chickens are addicting!! [​IMG] Don't know about heat but Black Stars (sex-links) are laying machines. I also haven't met a Black Star that wasn't friendly. [​IMG]

    Australorps are very friendly and good layers. I've heard that Cochins are very nice, but I don't know how well they lay.

    RIRs and Barred Rocks are great layers and are friendly.
